I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Cisco has a bunch of perks; Flexibility, Growth, Exposure, Work/Life Balance, Great Atmosphere, Work Family. Overall Cisco cares about their employees and what makes them happy.

Cons

Cisco only has a couple of negatives in my opinion. Performance reviews are slightly unfair but don't really harm you(meaning you are more likely to get average but that means good). Visiting HQ depends upon the team you work for and some teams never send people some limits visibility face to face (WebEx makes up for that a little but still would like to shake a hand from time to time.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Send your employees once every 2 years to shake hands in primary work locations. Find a better way to stank rank employees based on peers.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer Intern in San Jose, CA (US)

    I worked at Cisco Systems as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    It was a very friendly environment in general and you get to work with their product not on some side project. They also had good programs for interns throughout the summer and kept us very engaged.

    Cons

    They have a poor retention policy for interns and rarely recall interns from previous years or give them full time offers.
